Help with account

Post by King Bootz »

Okay. The emails, PMs, “forgot my password”, creating new account hasn’t worked. So this is the next resort.

@Moozician
@Admin1
@Mod LV
@MCMLXXVI
@ModX
@MOD TB12
@MODXVI

I’ve tried for weeks now to change the password on my account. No avail. I’m able to access the site from 1 of my devices that stays logged in. However cannot do so from another device. So I reached out to Mooz to advise that I would create a new account since I can’t get into this one from another device. Again, no avail. I’m asking for 1 if you to assist, stop ignoring the requests and emails please. I’m not trying to cause trouble, but this is something that should’ve been taken care of behind the scenes. Please and thank you.

Okay, this one is now active. I suppose you can delete the other Bootz acct. Still never got the email here, but whatever. I’m in now. Thanks.

You probably have to establish a whole new e-mail account.

Didn’t even think about that but it’s really irrelevant. The account got compromised twice, password changed as well without my doing.

AND thanks to you @Buc2 and @Babeinbucland teaching me how to screen shot last week I also did a little more learning and learned how to resize images for my avatar. So I'm gonna be changing those frequently!

It will remain that way unless the forum owners work to get this site more recognition. It won't happen by itself.

To be hones, I don't really know. It's not something I've ever had to worry about.

Bootz here.....Here we go AGAIN.

Locked out of my account yet again. Tried to do forgot my password yet again. No email link sent yet again.

Oddly enough this doesn't seem to happen to anyone else yet it's happened to me twice in the past month. What gives?

It is definitively not on this end. It is definitively on your end.

However, send me the account you want to access and send me the password you want to use and I will re-set it. I will disable all other accounts.

When are we going to be able to administer our own accounts? Such as changing our password or receiving email notifications of certain events?

There lies the issue. You have to wait for manual confirmation of these things when an automated response would suffice.

The King Bootz account I requested a new password for months and the request went ignored.

I’ve never been part of a social media community where I didn’t have control over things like my password or what email address I want to use. Those are very basic things. If this is a GoDaddy issue, then we need to take our ball to some other media host.

You are now active again as Bootz. This account will be disabled.

And next time instead of cluttering up the main board simply PM me or any of the other Mods. Mooz is not a Mod so reach out to one of us instead.

Was this one of your back-up accounts, or multiple registration/bi-posting accounts? It claims to have been created on 9-29 of friggin 2021! With 24 documented post-count it obviously was used prior to this thread. How many more will mysteriously show up in the future with "just after the board was created" dates?

This is being worked on, Literally, as I type. We do not have an ETA as it is not a simple process and takes some funds. But it is being addressed.

Thank you all for your patience. Trust me, the Mod team wants this board to work excellently as much or more than anyone.

@ModX , would you be kind enough to explain to me - if you are locked out and you do not have an extra account and there is no communication - how is someone able to PM you?

I would suggest you post an actual email to contact under the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the main page if possible. At least until you get this notification/contact snafu sorted out.

That would seem like the simplest solution but actually isn’t as viable as it seems and could create other issues (such as spamming our email address from those who wish to do us harm). The good news is we hope to have this issue resolved within the week. IT is working on it as I type.

I had the same problem as Bootz. Resent password doesn't work. Can only get it on my cellphone. How can i reset my password and why is the reset password link still not working?

Imagine having a Mod team that entertains all of this nonsense. If only they had an offer of no-strings-attached help from someone way, way better at this than they are. Think of how things could have been when a Dick such as me could have run this place into the ground too.

You can offer your services again, Outsider. Maybe they'll take you up on it this time.
